^ They actually did them for all of the SW prequels. They don't do them that often, unless it is for a movie they feel might sell well to fans of a certain genre. The Abyss had one written by Orson Scott Card, and Hook had one written by Terry Goodkind.

Fun fact: John Waters collects film novelizations. No idea why...

The first 3 Alien's all had books, not sure about the 4th one. Alan Dean Foster seems to specialize in this kind of literature.

Nice. Yeah...this one for sure I'm watching in 3D. Educate me on the IMAX of this film. I benefit how? Cuz I'm VERY fucking picky about going to to IMAX. I only go if something was specifically filmed w/ IMAX.

You don't, it's just cool to see it on a monster screen

Likewise, but this film is the only time I'm making an exception... for better or worse.

Now if this movie goes north of 2 hours, a former member here will be VERY happy!

I think there's a very good chance this will be over 2 hours.

Re: Prometheus (2012, D: Scott, Fassbender, Rapace, Theron, Wilson, Elba)

supposedly Fox is back on board with releasing films in 7.1 sound, 'Prometheus' and the new Ice Age movie - now if Fox does what they done with their other 7.1 films and only release them in 5.1 on the bluray version - I'll kick a puppy.

Ridley Scott himself said the movie was 119 minutes before credits.

So likely about 125-127 minutes depending on how long the credits are

Hmmm...wonder if they were shooting for a PG-13 to help out boxoffice. In this day and age it will take some kind of hit.

Re: Prometheus (2012, D: Scott, Fassbender, Rapace, Theron, Wilson, Elba)

^ My guess is they are hoping it gets good word of mouth and sticks around . However, even if it gets glowing reviews , it faces an uphill battle. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that if this movie disappoints financially, it could very well mean the end of the big-budget non-comedy rated R movie in the summer, or any other time for that matter.

I'm inclined to agree w/ Dr. DVD. If this fails. It could mean a lot to the industry. Which would suck for us. Cuz...if it fails. The chance of seeing Del Toro's At The Mountains of Madness is essentially destroyed.
